ROBERT SNODGRASS has pledged his immediate future to Hull City even if boyhood club Celtic make a summer move for him.

The 28-year-old winger has long been on the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership champions’ radar and the remarkable comeback he has made from a serious knee injury would have banished any doubts over his fitness.

Snodgrass, who began his career at Livingston before moving to Leeds United, starred for Hull in their victory on Saturday against Sheffield Wednesday at Wembley in the SkyBet Championship play-off, which the Humberside outfit won 1-0.

Such a player would cost Celtic at least the £7million Hull paid for him two years ago and if Brendan Rodgers does target him, and the player himself admitted he had been told about an interest, his wage demands would make him the best paid player at Celtic.

Snodgrass has strong emotional ties to the east end of Glasgow and even joked his family never watch him play for Hull because “you can’t get them away from Parkhead.”

But his deep feelings for Hull and gratitude for the way they looked after him during his 18-month battle to return from a dislocated knee means it would take a sensational offer to lure him back to Scotland.

The Herald:

Asked about Celtic being interested in him, Snodgrass said: “To be honest with you, I think everyone and their dog has messaged me about it. You are always the last to know.

“A new manager has gone into Celtic and it’s great for Scottish football, I have to say. But, for myself, I am a Hull City player. The supporters have been terrific for me. I have a three-year contract and I’m going to give this club every drop I have until I’m told otherwise.

“I have been through so much. These team-mates of mine are brilliant. I have great rapport with them and I love going into training every day. We go in with a smile on our faces. I can’t control what happens outside the club. The only thing I can control is what happens here and I have loved every second of Hull.”

Snodgrass suffered knee problems for two years before it gave way in his first ever match in the Premier League, against Queens Park Rangers, two seasons ago in August.

He only made it back in the second half of this campaign, which ended in promotion, and despite his problems Snodgrass, who will meet up with the Scotland team on Tuesday, always believed he would get back playing again as good as ever.

He said: “The type of character I am means I always knew I was going to come back. It was just a case of when and what position I would be in, where the manager (Steve Bruce) wanted to play me.

The Herald:

“We were top of the league so it was difficult to get into the team but he knew how much I wanted it, he saw how hard I worked off the training ground to be the best professional and team-mate I could be.

“He knew I would deliver the goods. Seven assists and five goals, I think that is good for half a season. It takes me half a season to get going. That’s the truth. It’s been that way throughout the career.”
